About This Product

The beauty and warmth of natural hardwood shines through on these PureBond Red Oak Plywood panels from Columbia Forest Products. Assembled using a soy-based PureBond technology, these 1/4 in. x 2 ft. x 8 ft. sheets feature American-grown timber throughout with decorative red oak face and back veneers that produce stellar results on DIY woodworking projects. Using a proper saw blade, these sheets can be custom-cut to suit an assortment of carpentry applications, including construction of furniture, shelves, bookcases, built-in cabinets, media centers, headboards and more. This formaldehyde-free plywood is a cost-competitive alternative to potentially health-hazardous UF boards that may release air-degrading fumes over time. It's as exquisite and robust as solid hardwood but without the expense and heft.

A:  Hi, Our product is the only intended for decorative plywood. I would check with your Home Depot to see if they have something better for the application you are needing.

      A:  Hello, This panel will not bend. You would need a bendable panel designed for that application.

        Answer This Question

        A:  Would not recommend using the Red Oak for flooring. It has a thin decorative red oak layer that is not intended to be used for a floor. The intended application is for cabinets, built-ins, shelving, etc. It will not warp or delaminate – however the thin Red Oak layer is not suited for floor wear.

            Did the job
            I needed to hide the press board ends of my red oak base cabinets. It sands wells and stains evenly. To prevent splintering when cutting with my jig saw, I scored through the oak layer with a new blade. It cut smoothly.

            Used in antique furniture restoration
            The only negative I found with this oak veneer plywood, was that the oak layer was very thin. Any 'deep sanding' could be a problem, but overall I found this to be exactly what I needed to replace the original drawer liners in an 18th century oak cabinet. They also took a stain color very well.

            I needed a smooth panel to replace a section of an oak desk at home that had a fake oak wood piece covering its drawers that was actually cardboard. The custom cut replacement oak piece was prepared perfectly, and the only detail I needed to manage was to stain the panel to match my oak finished desk. It came out very well and I would greatly recommend this product for anyone with a similar replacement panel need.
              Nice look just clear coated.
              Nice plywood used for inlay sides and bottom of drawers on my chest.

              The plywood sheets were delivered safely, packaged well. I cut them into 6" strips. I used a pre-stain conditioner & walnut stain. I then veneered a door to my wine cellar. I added some iron clavos and hardware and it looks great! I have since painted black in the cracks & edges and it really pops! I'll do it again sometime on another door - only prepaint the edges next time.
